NEW YORK, March 7, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Traveling has never been so exciting thanks to Booking.com, the global leader in connecting travelers with the widest choice of incredible places to stay. For years Booking.com has offered more awesome, unique places to stay than any other travel company in the world and today it is inspiring travelers to find and book the most incredible accommodations across the U.S with its newly launched 'Book the U.S' List.
Curated by the experts at Booking.com, the 'Book the U.S' List features the coolest, most unique properties across all the United States that go far beyond your traditional hotel.
With options ranging from national landmarks to caves, houseboats, castles, treehouses and more, it's only fitting a property as spectacular as The Covington Houseboat made the list. Stay the night on the Mississippi River – literally – at the Covington Inn. This houseboat is trimmed stem to stern in mahogany, brass and bronze, extending to guests the elegant comfort once reserved aboard historic work vessels for company executives and VIPs.
